MEMORANDUM AND ORDER ON PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR LEAVE TO AMEND HIS COMPLAINT, reversing 59 report of the magistrate judge recommending denial of permission to amend. Plaintiff may amend his complaint to substitute Detective Tranchina for Detective Shapiro. Plaintiff's claim against Detective Tranchina is timely under the governing statute of limitations. The Corporation Counsel may not assert the statute of limitations as a defense; it did not adequately discharge its ethical and procedural duties to Plaintiff to disabuse him of his mistake. The claim against Detective Tranchina relates back to the filing of the original complaint. Dismissing this claim on the basis of the statute of limitations would be inconsistent with Valentin v. Dinkins 121 F.3d 72, 75 (2d Cir. 1997), Krupski v. Costa Crociere S. p. A., 560 U.S. 538, 541 (2010), and Buran v. Coupal, 661 N.E.2d 978, 981 (N.Y. 1995). The court reserves judgement on Defendants' motion for Summary Judgement on other grounds. Ordered by Judge Jack B. Weinstein on 11/8/2017. (Barrett, C)
